After too many weeks and one cancelled appointment due to being sick I finally got my hair done. I don't know about you but I find two and half hours of color, cut and eyebrows relaxing. I read all the junk magazines to catchup on the celebs and chat with my stylist. I completely trust her judgement and she hasn't done me wrong yet. We went with three different highlight colors. Blond, strawberry and darker. I like the darker for the winter but I keep catching myself in the mirror and being surprised. And I kept the length even though I was certain I was only keeping it long for the wedding. But I like it and the cut she does makes it really easy to care for. You know what else is nice? Coming home to a guy who actually notices the change and tells me I look hot.
